THIS IS NOT HOW I WANTED THE YEAR TO BEGIN

You guys, my story has refused to stick to the script these beginning days of 2017. This is what the script looked like:
-Teach my kids intensely
-Publish three recipes(one a video recipe) in the first week
-Host a new year giveaway
-Prepare and enjoy all sorts of healthy meals
-Start Bible-in-one-year plan
But this is what has actually happened;
-An unprecedented trip to the hospital in an ambulance due to chronic neck pain – muscle spasm
-Being unable to do much apart from lying down, sitting, crying, wishing, praying, etc
I have been given various powerful pain killers but they work for a while then the pain returns. I have prayed and I have been prayed for. The pain is still there.
I have lightly massaged the area, applied heat and cold to it, applied peppermint oil, watched neck sprain videos on YouTube and practiced everything from acupuncture to neck exercises. What kind of pain is this?
As much as this frustrates me, I’m hanging in here and trusting God that this too shall pass. Please pray for me. If you have any ideas on how I could alleviate this pain, please kindly share.
I’ll be back full swing when this thorn in my flesh is over.
